"Jonestown: The Life and Death of the Peoples Temple"


Watched the PBS documentary about Peoples Temple last night.

Very sad and informative. Very well done. Big production though.

It's amazing that there was so much footage and audio recordings available - even from the actual massacre/mass suicide! Actually it's even more amazing that with so much material available it took this long for someone to make a film.

Of course, the content is very chilling. This film makes an excellent case for how dangerous blind faith and organized religion can be. I actually liked (even though it felt odd at first) that in the end of the film we're reminded of the positive intentions the church had started out with.
